Though the web might not be as big a fact of life within Rappahannock County as it is elsewhere, certain organizations and businesses located in the county have built impressive fan bases on Facebook. Not surprising, since most of these organizations are what they are today because of . . . customers from elsewhere.

Here’s the top 20 as of March 14:

  1. Shenandoah National Park 26,063
  2. Castleton Festival 12,665
  3. The Inn at Little Washington 5,553
  4. R.H. Ballard Art, Rug & Home 5,258

Our list of Rappahannock’s top 20 Facebook fan pages managed to miss what would have been — by a rather large margin — No. 1 on that list: Cooters Place (facebook.com/cootersplace), with 89,666 fans, is the Facebook home of the pair of Tennessee museums/memorabilia emporiums devoted to All Things “Dukes of Hazzard” and operated, from right here in Harris Hollow, by Ben “Cooter” Jones and his wife, Alma Viator (although Ben says Alma handles all the Facebook magic). The business started in Sperryville with the original Cooter’s Place, not far from the entrance to Shenandoah National Park — which is now second on that top-20 list, with 26,063 fans.
